Essentially Lively is a browser plug-in which lets you create and join existing customized virtual “rooms” in-browser to chat with your friends and associates. You can embed those rooms onto your web site as well.
The Google blog says
If you enter a Lively room embedded on your favorite blog or website, you can immediately get a sense of the room creator’s interests, just by looking at the furniture and environment they chose. You can also express your own personality by customizing your avatar’s look, showing people who you are without having to say a word. Of course, you can chat with each other, and you can also interact through animated actions. In our user research, we’ve been amazed at how much more poignant it is to receive an animated hug than seeing the text “[[hug]]”.
The below embedded Youtube video also helps you get a better understanding about what lively is all about.
